Synopsis: Preparing his movie Paris, Texas in late 1983, German filmmaker Wim Wenders travelled the West equipped with a 6x7 medium format camera in search of subjects and locations that would bring this desolate landscape to life. Driving the empty highways of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California he was transfixed by the vastness of a country saturated with light and color and energized by the American cowboy mystique????????????a country that even in the 20th century had lost none of its evocative, mythic power. This collection of lush, colorful photographs displays dramatic, visually arresting images, haunting vistas and the poetic dilapidation of a country touched by man but ruled by nature. An interview with the photographer reveals the many ways Wenders was both moved and bemused by the "heartland" of the American Dream. His sensibility, along with outstanding photographic skills, allows us to expericence the West in a whole new brillianty colorful light.

From the Publisher: In preparation for shooting the film Paris, Texas in late 1983, director Wim Wenders traveled the West equipped with a 5 x 6 medium format camera searching out subjects and locations that would bring that desolate landscape to life. For several months he drove the empty highways of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California, transfixed by the vastness of a country saturated with light and color and energized by the American cowboy mystique. Even in the twentieth century, it was a landscape that had lost none of its evocative, mythic power. This collection of lush, colorful photographs magnificently displays what Wenders' practiced eye sought out: dramatic and visually arresting images, haunting vistas, and the poetic dilapidation of a country touched by man but ruled by nature. An enlightening interview with the photographer reveals the many ways that Wenders, a European traveling in a distinctly American landscape, was both moved by and bemused by what he considers the heartland of the American Dream. It is this sensibility, along with Wenders enormous photographic talents, that lend this collection a unique quality, and that allow us to experience the West in a whole new, brilliantly colorful light.
